I'm looking at buying my first DSLR some time this year. There is no urgency and the timing may depend on what info I can dig up online about replacement for current models. I'm leaning towards a D90 package with a 55-200.
well the d40 came out in 2006 and was replaced in 2009, so that sounds about right. consider also, the time it takes to enter the retail market, so around 3 years between entry level models sounds right.
